Moscow, Mar 21 Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said Russian Federation can play an important role in the crisis following Syria's firing missiles at israeli warplanes carrying out strikes in the conflict-torn country.

Israel has threatened to "destroy" Syrian air defence systems "without the slightest hesitation" after Bashar al-Assad's army fired missiles at jets carrying out airstrikes.

Russia's foreign ministry on Monday said it had summoned Israel's ambassador over the strikes and "expressed concern".

The Syrian media reported that the country's Defense Ministry claimed that one Israeli plane was downed and another was damaged from anti-aircraft fire.

Tensions in the Middle East are boiling after Israel carried out air strikes against Syria last Friday, prompting retaliatory strikes from Syrian forces that have seemingly set the two governments completely at odds as ISIS fights for greater control. It marked the first time Israel had used the Arrow missile, which has been jointly developed with the U.S. over years to defend against long-range missiles from Iran.

Syria responded by firing several missiles at the aircraft - one of which was intercepted by Israel's air defense systems. The Syrian army recaptured Palmyra from IS on March 2, three months after losing it to the jihadists for a second time.

On Friday, the Arrow 2 was deployed for the first time, shooting down a surface-to-air missile shot from Syria, says Brig.

During his comments yesterday, Ja'afari said: "Russia has sent a clear message to Israel that the rules of the game have changed in Syria and its freedom to act in Syrian skies is over". The line running east to west from Iran through Syria to Lebanon has been dubbed the "Shiite Axis", as Iran and Hezbollah are predominantly Shiite.

The Iranian regime contributed to the birth of Hezbollah in the early 1980s and has since sustained the group with Iranian weapons, money, and training.

This is largely in keeping with Israel's own narrative on the Syrian Civil War, despite the pretense of neutrality. He continued to say that the Syrians must know that they are responsible for these arms deals with Hezbollah and if continue down this road, Israel will do what they have to do to stop them. Israel estimates that Hezbollah has thousands of more reserve fighters than it did in 2006. "Hezbollah has been violating United Nations resolutions and is gearing for war".
